Highlights

At MailChimp, having a billboard started out as a fun idea but soon turned into a unique experiment as the company sought to achieve a return on investment not by sales, but a simple smile from loyal users.

Details

Without the intent to sell, creative liberty manifested itself in the final idea – the face of their mascot, Frederick von Chimpenheimer IV (Freddie), simply acknowledging passersby with a light-hearted wink.

Rational

Inspired by quirky and interesting public art created by organizations like Living Walls and Flux, the team at MailChimp wanted to engage their current customers, and intrigue new ones, with something puzzling and out of the ordinary. After carefully choosing and executing with an experimental location, San Francisco (a market with a large number of MailChimp users), the buzz began, with dozens of photos being posted and plenty of positive acknowledgements from fans.

Results

Pleased with the success of their original billboard, MailChimp expanded their campaign into several markets across the country, including Chicago, San Diego, Minneapolis, Nashville and Detroit...and it didn't take long to get noticed. Twitter and Instagram exploded with activity as soon as the billboards went up, most ecstatic by the brand's sudden presence in their cities. The social media reaction exemplifies how a simple, well-placed logo can generate social media buzz through out-of-home!
